We were staying in Galveston for a long weekend and had tickets to see The Texas Tenors at The Grand Opera House. We decided to "wing it" and walk from our hotel, The Tremont House. We were seated and served in unrushed manner and food was excellent. Wish we could remember servers name but oops. She was great at calling us "hun" "dear" and "darlin" so what's not to like....felt like home!

The food was excellent and service was great. Our waitress was very nice and attentive to us. My hubby and I split their little daddy's chicken and sausage gumbo which was served in separate bowls even though we were would have been just as happy with 2 spoons. Then we each had an entree: he had the full size shrimp po-boy and i had the fish sandwich. Both were very good and hearty portions.

We chose Little Daddy's Gumbo Bar looking for variety and a highly-rated restaurant. I know that Cajun food is spicey, but this restaurant was not for us. I suppose that we should have ordered gumbo. My wife and I shared the shrimp platter which consisted of very spicey boiled shrimp on a help of greasy French Fries. Beer was not cold as it should have been. Little Daddy's Gumbo had the feel of a greasy spoon.

Galveston is well known for over priced, medium quality restaurants.
This place is not that..
Almost everything was super great
We were greeted at the door by the manager, Manager- perfect business attire, Chefs-Perfect professional attire.
The decor was great, they had hand painted designs on the walls
Cloth napkins, great crockery,
Food quality, was really some of the best in Galveston
More than generous portions..
This is not cheap eats.. and you are not getting cheap eats, this is really well done gumbo..
With all of that said, there was one thing that stuck out like a sore thumb… the wait staff..
This is a very nice restaurant , and the staff is dressed like they work at a mom and pop drive through.
(Cheesy tee shirts) and the staff looked unkept.. (not dirty.. just like they did not care)
I think they need to have the wait staff present themselves like they work at nice business, and this place will have a cue outside the door..
We will defiantly go eat here again, when we are in town..
